For "Blackmail" it was PD in the UK at time of GATT so not eligible for restore. I checked the U.S. copyright catalog and this is the info I found. I have all the copyright renewal pages downloaded from Haiti Trust as their search function doesn't always return results even if there was one because of garbled OCR text. So I read the pages one by one to be sure.

From cumulative copyright catalog - original registration:

BLACKMAIL. 1930. 8 reels, sd. From the
play by Charles Bennett.
Credits: Directed and adapted by Alfred
Hitchcock.
© Sono Art World Wide Pictures, Inc.;
21Dec30; LP1841.

*** Renewal Window - 21Dec57 to 21Dec58

No renewal found in copyright catalog
